Minus One Project is a simple, one-step, easy to-do initiative intended to slow down the deforestation rate across the world.
It aims to do so by inducing a wiser and careful habit of paper consumption. All one has to do is reduce the font size of a document by 1 before printing.
It is to be noted that every year over 5 million hectares of forest trees vanish for producing paper, a major portion of which is consumed for printing.
By adopting Minus One, we can reduce the paper consumption for printouts considerably, almost up to 50%. Which means lesser number of trees would be felled for paper. In a nutshell, it becomes an effective and incremental change that will add up to a bigger forest.
